Thinking about getting a mitre saw to do all those repetitive cuts that
crop up from time to time.
Several things I need to consider the first being cost. Idealy no more
than £50 but you get what you pay for and I can go up to £100.
Secondly size, This is because I live in a small flat with limited
storage plus I like it to be easily portable.
Adaptability, Because I'd like to make a portable workstaion for it.
Finally some sort of dust collection system, either bag or just
connecting it to the Henry shop vac.
Seen some around at my local hardware superstore and online and I just
need some advice as to what to go for.
There is something to be said for starting with a basic saw and seeing how
your needs develop. You may never need the sliding capabilities. I, for
one, waited until I could afford the saw that "I really wanted" with
"everything I need". Guess what? Thirty years passed and I now have
grandkids and I'm just starting to get my shop together. I made do with a
Shopsmith multi-purpose machine through all of those years but I sure lost a
lot of time and experience. Buy a quality, low feature saw and you will be
better off than buying some off-brand with more features but it may not hold
